    I might agree if I can see the rest of that conversation. Sounded like to me that McCain was going off on a tangent, something other than what the topic was...

    How is that a low blow? That to me sounds like he's getting sick of hearing nothing but talking points and catchphrases that are clearly for the cameras rather than getting well thought out policies on the table.

    well seem like Obama completely dodge the point on remove special interested from the bill and instead went to doing a political insult.

    It's really hard to say how inappropriate Obama's comment(s) were in the context of a 38-sec clip of a larger discussion.

    Obama did seem a little fed-up - which, again, may or may not have anything to do with McCain - as the clip is too short to clarify.

    McCain was certainly gracious though...

    The clip is just too short to know what is going on in the context of the meeting.

    Really meaningless

    Yup, they're clearly not trying to do anything (even if you disagree with what they are doing) and instead sitting on their asses twiddling their thumbs shouting out campaign slogans and buzzwords.:rolleyes:

    To ignore that they are least trying to get things done is asinine.

    Yeah I took exception to that too... way over the top.... The Clown-in-Chief flatters himself daily, reminding all that he "won", insulting others, and referring constantly to "I" to demean others and boost his own inflated ego; he's truly a legend in his own mind and totally repulsive to all. Yes his comment today to Sen. McCain was totally uncalled for; John McCain served this nation and was a prisoner of war. He deserves the president's respect at very least. Sen. McCain was very respectful in his comments today.

    If you watched the whole exchange, like I did, you would know that McCain came after Obama and said he made unsavory backroom deals. Obama responded. McCain laughed. Move on, nothing to see here.

    EDIT: Here's a slightly longer clip

    It seemed like Obama was blatantly saying campaign promises mean nothing because the campaign is over. Still, its hard to read the context in a short clip.

    You have to earn respect; Obama did himself no favors by slamming McCain as he did. It was Obama himself that campaigned on the repeated statement of health care legislation worked out in the open. He lied. Most of the initial legislation was crafted in back rooms.

    Where have you been? George W. Bush has not been in the whitehouse for over a year.

    Just want to make sure I understand the chronology. Forum participant Inthenet trashes a public figure, and then you trash Inthenet personally. Am I leaving anything out?

    How can you praise McCain for his "respect" when you so clearly lack it yourself?

    I saw the whole exchange and that was not what this was about. Procedure was dealt with earlier and they moved on to other topics. McCain brought this up when they were supposed to be talking about costs and real solutions that both parties could agree on. McCain was off topic and was dealt with accordingly.

    You know what, you're right I deleted my comment. Because I for one can have an intelligent conversation and respond to criticisms against me and my posts..

    Calling a spade a spade is not a personal attack by any means.

    Well in some ways it is on topic. Cut out those special interested group deals things and it would drive down cost.

    McCain was banging on about something completely off topic.
